Team India tour of West Indies for bilateral series starts from August 03. After this series, the current support staff will end their extension. After this series, Team India’s find a new coach. Cricket Advisory Committee will be appointed team India’s new head coach. The application for India’s head coach submitted by interested candidates. But earlier Virat Kohli put his opinion on India’s head coach.
“The CAC hasn’t contacted me yet. If they want my opinion, I’ll go and speak to them. With Ravi Bhai, we share a great camaraderie, and will definitely be very happy if he continues. But I haven’t been contacted so far,” Kohli had said.
Cricket Advisory Committee member Anshuman Gaekwad said that captain’s opinion doesn’t matter for us.
“The captain can say anything. It doesn’t bother us. We are a committee. That’s his opinion, and the BCCI takes a note of it, not us,” Anshuman Gaekwad was quoted as saying by IANS.
“We have to go with an open mind. There are interviews to be conducted. A lot of people from India and abroad have applied. We have to go there and assess things,” Anshuman Gaekwad added.
“It all depends on the BCCI. BCCI has to give us guideline and then we will go accordingly. He has already said yesterday (what he wants). When we chose the women’s coach, we did not contact anybody. We did it on our own,” said Gaekwad.
“Basically, what is important is…I have been a coach. Kapil has been a coach. What is important is man management, planning, and technical expertise.”
“These three things are most important for a coach to succeed. The Indian team is doing well. But to get them to do better, these are the three things. There are a lot of things. But these are the main things,” Anshuman Gaekwad said.
